Re: Armstrong getting caught up in lies

said by loli:

Armstrong is indeed a wizard apparently.

Armstrong is a very polarizing individual, especially now. For those that take an interest in him and his current situation it seems to be either a hate or love, or condemn or praise attitude. There is but little room for middle ground.

But then reasonable minds can differ. That's simply how the world is and how it should be.

In the end no matter what any of his critics, supporters, or those of neutral or conflicting POV regarding Lance Armstrong, former World Champion and seven times Tour de France Winner the facts remain, and the facts regardless of the value one places on the morality of them are:

He was the fastest.
He was the strongest.
He was a sportsman.
He inspired.
He was the most accomplished.
He was the greatest of all time.

No words and NO ONE can ever change that. No notation in a "record book" can ever change the fact that he beat everyone, wore the Yellow Jersey and stood atop the podium.

History will decide. IMHO without any disrespect toward differing perspectives he will come out as described above.

He beat them all, and a majority of them were cheaters too, including his own team.

He will be remembered as an elite athlete who cheated.

Fixed it for you..

Other than testimony from others who either admitted they cheated or were caught cheating, I have seen no conclusive proof that Lance Armstrong ever cheated.

I've been kind of following this story since it came out, mostly because I have a few friends who are big into cycling, so I don't have a horse in this race. Maybe I'm missing something, but from what I've read, you've got a bunch of people who got caught doping saying Armstrong was doping, too. Weren't his accusers caught by failing blood or urine tests? Didn't Armstrong pass all the same tests? Sounds like sour grapes to me.

That's my take on the situation...

Yes it did, because there has been no proof, only accusations...

There's still no reason for YOU to correct MY opinion.

That's why I typed that. To poke a little fun with fixing quotes

For real though, let's relax and take it easy and not get angry over all this. Only one we should care to reply to is ZZZZZZ who prefers guilty before proven innocent. I do wonder what Nike saw that made them decide to kill off the contract.

So do I...
I suspect there was no proof, but pressure from outside the company and investors...
